Lu wrote, "This is a beautiful Valentine's card! I am trying to complete older card kits. Remember Window Frames from 2017?"
Joyce said, "My Sunday share! I made this one for a special little lady!"
Tasha said, "just for fun!"
The texture on your Luxury Icon Purse is just gorgeous. We'll take one!
Donna shared, "I have had a wonderful day creating these cards, the products are so amazing I love Anna’s products so much."
Suravi shared, "What a grand thing,to be loved! What a grander thing still, to love! - Victor Hugo"
Nicole posted, "Happy Sunday share AG and Griffinites! I had so much fun putting ruffles of ivory satin ribbon around this Valentine! What's your favorite way to make Valentines?"
Love the ribbon!
Marie wrote, "Trying to catch up on birthdays!"
The Birthday Wishes Dies are some of our favorite!
Jane said, "I love pink valentines. Crafting them with Anna Griffin Inc. Heart Easel die makes them easy and you can personalize them any way you want. I think this one could've used more pink!"
Becky Jo posted, "Making Valentine parts that go with the theme of where I am. I like to lay them out in a collage. Then get ideas. I laid these on Salon Nouveau. They will make “frosty Valentine’s” "
Terry posted, "My friends are living on their boat for a while, so I mailed this to their marina. They just sent this picture of their card which moves with the gentle rocking of their boat."
Wanda posted, "I did a pink house previously, but this one is for another Maria that’s in my life who is getting married shortly. The first card she ever made was just this last December and it was an Anna Griffin holiday house card which she made into a Barbie house. Then we recently went to a gourd farm to make houses out of gourds and she made a pink gourd gingerbread house with a pink tree. So this is for her bridal shower."
Gorgeous card, Wanda!
Tracy One of my cards from the gorgeous Valentine Card Set. I'm noticing that the dimension is not opposed to the hot glue string screaming, "I'm here" 
Donna wrote, "Having fun with the Shoe craft box! This one is a sandal for my sister’s birthday. It has a red heal underneath!"
Terry shared, "Happy Sunday Friends! This card's main attraction is the adorable little sailor boy from the Romantic Stickers & Sentiments. I made the heart flowers with a Gift Tag die & a heart punch. The Lace Doily Dies are the background layers."
Jan said, "Love the Rocker Valentines & all the wonderful products I used to create this card."
Diane posted, "This pretty card was one of the quickest I have ever made! I made 2 die cuts using the 3D Enchanted Heart dies, embossed the heart and the card base and added 3 of Anna’s stickers! Voila!"
Clare shared her "valentine for Jamie."
Carrie said, "So many beautiful cards shared here! We celebrated my Mother's 82nd birthday over the weekend & this is the card that I made for her. She is such a warm & loving Mother & I am so blessed that she is still here with us."
What a stunning card!
Rosemary shared her pretty red and white card.
Sherry shared, "I am finishing up my Valentine cards today.Here is one of five I made today. I used the Floral Gatefold card as my base and added Vellum behind the side panels. I topped it off with a ribbon-edged heart decorated with a cute cherub and used a small hidden magnet to hold the gatefold panels closed. On the inside I added an oval layer cut from an oval compendium die and decorated it using floral die cuts from several different Valentine kits from Anna."
Diane wrote, "This week's paper Valentine projects, I made treat boxes for our family & filled them with Hersey’s chocolate “Hugs & Kisses”. Heart boxes were purchased from a craft store but, I used Anna’s 3D Lace Doily dies, pretty papers, Matte Foil card stock & bows. Pearls & rhinestones are from my stash."
Arlene wrote, "Sending “Lots of Love” with a 3D dimensional pop up card. I went deep into my stash and used the frame from Album Making Dies. The figures on each side were fussy cut from Beaux Regards Embellishments (would love to see them in next years Valentine stickers).I also used stickers from the Crown and Wedding Card Toppers."
Barbara No cards but I did a scrapbook page. I used my paper tricks folder on the sides. I couldn’t do anything fancy since I only had the one sheet.
Mary Beth I am convinced someone invented Valentine's Day to ward away the winter "blahs"!!!
We agree 100%, Mary Beth!
Pam posted, "Have a friend who needed some Valentine boxes for an office luncheon to use as favors on tables."
Gorgeous boxes!
Gay Lynn wrote, "Made a card for a colleague’s bridal shower."
Cindi shared, "Couldn't sleep so after re-watching the Product Preview I made this using the Charmed Vellum Card toppers. It came together so easily just like the Simply series!"
Elizabeth said, "I pulled out a card kit from 2013 called All About Love. It contained a number of scored paper strips to make pinwheels. I like pinwheels, but not making them. I used the Lace Doily Embellishments instead. The color of the doilies matched perfectly!! I also used Foil Flourishes to add some interest."
Stephanie wrote, "I received my inks last week and tried them out with some of my impression dies. Love, love, love them. Colors are so vibrant and ink is so juicy. Thank you again for the wonderful prize. Am busy watching Anna on HSN today & was even inspired to make a card using the one of the stamps in the Inspirational Expression Stamps & Die Kit. Also used an Impression Die Card Blank and Anna's Matte Foil Card Stock."
